Color is a fascinating subject; a subject that evokes enough creativity and pickles the minds of many. If we were to pause looking at color as a creative subject for just a brief amount of time, we would be able to explore it from a different perspective, the perspective of science! This color science will open new avenues for us to understand why colors behave in certain ways.

While computers can easily understand the fact that you mix red and green to end up with yellow, that’s some strange logic to us humans which we shall never comprehend!

How can we stay within the RGB color model, which computers understand, and mix colors more creatively to use a method which we humans can understand? This need for a more creative model gave birth to the HSL (Hue, Saturation, and Luminosity) color model.

While we learned the basics about RGB colors, that constitute portions of Red, Blue, and Green—what we need to know is that there is so much more to learn about them. Did you know that there are two ways in which individual RGB color values are expressed? The most common way is using decimals.

But have you run into color values such as FF0000 or 006699? These six digit values that combine number and alphabet characters are hexadecimals. Now hexadecimals express the same values as decimals—but unlike decimals that need 9 characters to describe the three colors, R, G, and B, hexadecimals need only 6 characters.

The three primary colors of this electronic color model are Red, Blue, and Green, and that explains why this model is called the RGB color model. RGB is essentially an abbreviation for Red Green Blue.

Color is something that we can all differentiate between. Most of us have little problem differentiating between red and blue, or even between red and pink. Color is also something that’s been part of our lives, and part of our education system. Most of us learned about color before we learned the alphabet. Yet, as we grew, many of us forgot what a joy color can be!

A fascinating quality of color is contrast. Contrast is the quality that distinguishes one color’s luminosity from another. If you place black next to white, you will end up with striking contrast. But yellow placed next to white will certainly not provide the same contrast.

The fact that you can customize options within the menus and toolbars in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac may mean that sometimes you may just get carried away and make more changes than you intended. Or, you made some changes for an important project that’s over, and now you want the menus and toolbars to go back to their pristine, default state. Whatever your intent may be, PowerPoint’s Reset option lets achieve this default state with a couple of clicks.

Imagine that you have a long numbered list that forms the content within your PowerPoint slide. Now, it is not uncommon for slides to have numbered lists that comprise twenty lines, and that is singularly unfortunate because even if members of your audience have perfect eyesight, they won’t be able to read the teeny-weeny sized text!

And let us face the fact that too much text is downright boring, and nowadays any sort of bulleted or numbered lists seem to signify a poorly designed slide. One approach you can take to combat this problem is by dividing your list across multiple slides, but even then, PowerPoint may default to numbering your lists at 1 on each slide. What if you want your lists to start at 6, 11, or 16! Luckily, that is an easier problem to resolve.
